1000 years of collecting: The Jeffrey M. Kaplan Collection offered at Freeman's
Albert Paley, Coffee Table. Estimate $8,000-12,000.

PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Freeman’s Senior Vice President and Decorative Arts Division Head, Nicholas Nicholson remarks on the upcoming single-owner sale scheduled for April 6, "It has been our great pleasure to work closely with Jeffrey M. Kaplan and his family as he places this extraordinarily diverse collection back into the hands of the market, to enrich the collections of others. This is a rich group of material entirely fresh to the market.”

Jeffrey M. Kaplan is the definition of a true renaissance man, While many collectors choose to focus only on one area, Jeffrey Kaplan has formed a “collection of collections.” He acquired the works of artists in depth in a number of fields of interest -- and this passion for collecting has allowed him to assemble an astonishing body of works in many media that spans across 1000 years.

1000 Years of Collecting: The Jeffrey M. Kaplan Collection features significant works on paper, Asian works of art, modern and contemporary design, and 19th European decorative arts by noted artists and designers. There are significant sub collections of works on paper by Piranesi, Cyril Power, Edward Alexander Wadsworth, Charles Burchfield, Lyonel Feininger, Joseph Stella, and others. There are also exceptional examples of work by Pierre Bonnard, Edward Hopper, Kathe Kollwitz, Paul Signac, Edouard Vuillard, Felix Vallotton, and Maurice de Vlaminck.

The decorative arts section is no less important with a large selection of Chinese embroidered rank badges and textiles, Chinese sculptures in stone and ceramic, fine collections of Biedermeier and Renaissance Revival furniture and decorative arts, as well as interesting pieces of Art Nouveau furnishings and glass by artists such as Louis Majorelle and Emile Galle. The modern design section features a significant collection of works by American metal artist Albert Paley, as well as works in glass by Kyohei Fujita, Dale Chihuly, and Lino Tagliapietra.

We encourage serious collectors as well as a new generation of devotees to take part in this one of a kind sale. The Jeffrey M. Kaplan Collection is without rival in its unique array of Art, Furniture, and Fine Decorative Objects which span over 1000 years.
